General Education Requirement

The General Education program at Tougaloo is designed to develop important skills and the knowledge needed to prepare students for graduate and professional schools and for life and work in a global society. As a part of the General Education requirements, students must take two semesters of the same modern language, beginning at the Elementary level (101 & 102). Students who took a modern language in high school have the opportunity to test out of one or two elementary level language courses prior to enrolling in the intermediate level course. Arabic, Korean, Chinese, French, Japanese and Spanish courses are eligible to fulfill this requirement.
